Today I was at Delta Secondary School doing an Ag In The Classroom presentation for their Food 11 and 12 class! I gave a powerpoint presentation about life on the ranch and went through what goes on during the different seasons. We also played “Name That Tool” a game where I give the students a tool that we regularly use on the ranch and they need to guess what it is and why we use it. I really had a great time helping connect students to where their food comes from and how it is raised. I would also like to thank the teachers that took part and the coordinating staff with Ag In The Classroom, for realizing the importance of a program like this. I really think this program will help develop awareness about the true story of agriculture!
